catching up

Standard

I’ve had a few ideas for posts rattling around in my head.

    video games, how some people are better off not commenting on a community that they really have no connection to or interest in in the long run
    holidays in general
    our vacation/ thanksgiving
    lists
    journals
    gradschool (yeah i know i’ve mentioned it a million times)
    work ( in theory, not specifically)
    friends
    weddings
    small children

Some of them are still rattling and some have wandered away… today will be about lists, because those are nice and organized and don’t require a ton of thought to make them sound like anything more than just a list.

    Things I did this past week:
    Toured a the first penitentiary
    Walked around Philadelphia and ate a cheese stake
    Drove through Valley Forge
    Ate tons of yummy food/beer
    Met OtherJ’s friends M&M
    Met OtherJ’s brother/sister-in-law/niece
    Had yummy thanksgiving dinner
    Took a picture of the Washington Monument from a moving vehicle
    Only worried a little bit about work
    Was told my degree was not recognized for the grad program I was considering.
    Realized that eating out with friends and family all the time would make me all sorts of fat…
    gained 7-10 lbs over vacation and should really start working out again.

It was a busy week, but the least busy vacation we’ve ever taken. We had a great time.

    Things to get done by the end of the year:
    Put up holiday decorations
    Take Pictures of Bunnies for holiday cards
    Get xmas presents
    find/use the gym
    Clean the house – for reals
    rearrange living room/maybe a little maybe a lot
    look for new bed and new couch.

Those are mostly just the practical bits… there are some personal artsy bits I want to get done by the end of the year, but those are a little more fluid and will need a little more will power:

    get prints made of OtherJ’s photos, organize into note card sets (sell on etsy?)
    Paint something pretty

Maybe I’ll do another this soon…those seem to work out pretty well.
